Little Rock was attractive to attorney Dan Young, and he is a co-founder of a new program designed to attract other young professionals to the state capital.
Young, whose law practice is almost entirely devoted to estate planning, grew up in the Crittenden County town of Crawfordsville. After studying finance at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, he earned a law degree at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and a master's of law in taxation at the University of Florida.
Young came to the Rose Law Firm 10 years ago. There he provides estate planning services to the firm's existing clients as well as to clients he recruits on his own.
As a member of Class XXIV of Leadership Greater Little Rock, Young has helped found a program called Create Little Rock. "The goal of Create Little Rock is to try to attract new professionals into the city," he says, through mixers and other activities open to interns and clerks working for any of the business members of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce.
He is also a member of the Rotary Club, the board of directors of Potluck Inc. and the professional advisory council for the Centers for Youth & Families. Next month he will join the House of Delegates of the Arkansas Bar Association.
